The Law Office of Benjamin Gergen

I am a third-generation attorney, born and raised in Austin, Texas. You could say I grew up rooting for the underdog. Despite growing up surrounded by Longhorns, by the age of 10 I had become a diehard Texas Tech Red Raider fan.

My dreams came true, and I attended Texas Tech University and received a bachelor’s degree in Finance, but quickly realized my talents were better put to use in the courtroom by following my bloodlines and becoming an attorney. I came back to Austin and enrolled in the University of Texas School of Law. While at UT, I interned in the Juvenile Justice Clinic, helping indigent juvenile defendants navigate their way through the juvenile courts. I quickly realized this was my passion and that my personality and skill set were a perfect match for this profession.

A good criminal defense attorney is patient, empathetic, understanding, but firm. A good criminal defense attorney uses his or her own personal experiences to craft solutions to complex problems that can change in an instant. I possess this skillset and it gives me and my clients the advantage when we go into court. After overcoming my own personal struggles with addiction at a young age, and watching as close friends and family members dealt with substance abuse issues of their own, I, more than most others, realize that for some a crime is the result of one bad decision, and for many others, a crime is the ultimate result of addiction, mental illness, or both.

I am lucky to live and solely practice in a progressive county, and I am able to help give my clients desirable results by working closely with prosecutors and judges. I give the state confidence that when my clients address the root of the problem that led to the crime (i.e., substance abuse causing someone to burglarize a house to support a drug habit) via treatment or psychiatric care, the act won’t be repeated in the future.
